“Act 46 is working better than I had imagined. Over half of all students in this state now live in communities that are moving forward with or having serious conversations about how to work together to improve educational quality and provide relief to taxpayers. That is happening because of Act 46 and it is how we will right-size our education system to reflect the fact that there are 20,000 fewer students today than in 1998.”
Gov. Peter Shumlin, in a January 2016 statement.
